We put the pipe in for the new external tap which will be in the centre of the garden, while we had the trenches around the building still open. We connected this to the new pipe and will leave this coiled up until we dig the final part of the trench to the proposed location of the tap. Water pipe should be a minimum of 750mm deep to prevent it from freezing when the weather is cold.
We will need to take this pipe over the ground source loop to get to the proposed location of the tap. Where it will be within a metre of the ground source pipe will will need to insulate it to prevent it from freezing.
